Textual content description supplied by the architects. In Tehran’s “Ab o Atash” Park, close to the Tabiat Bridge, there was a constructing that was a secure for horse protecting. Our undertaking concerned the renovation and alter endeavor of this constructing from a secure to a coworking house and revitalizing it. The transformation from a secure to a coworking house was engaging and thrilling. The secure constructing, deserted for years, required in depth repairs and refurbishment. Whereas preserving the general kind and facade of the constructing, we aimed to keep up its id and provides it a brand new social character by making adjustments to the inside areas.
On condition that the constructing was surrounded by a dense park and positioned close to one of many metropolis’s foremost highways, creating home windows to carry the optimistic ambiance of the environment into the inside house was of essentially the most significance. Subsequently, we determined to create round home windows alongside the bottom ground to make sure that customers don’t really feel disconnected from the skin setting. Moreover, by opening up skylights, we sought to extend the penetration of pure gentle into the complicated.
Because of the appreciable size of the bottom ground, we created two elliptical areas within the plan to introduce spatial separation in a means that the uninterrupted elongated form of the plan wouldn’t visually dominate the house. These created ellipses performed an necessary position for us, with one as the doorway and partitioning space and the opposite as a relaxation house and atrium. To make sure the inner courtyard had appropriate views from all sides, we designed permeable partitions and constructed them utilizing handcrafted concrete blocks. Making these blocks on the location was essential to the undertaking execution. We designed and fabricated a metallic body to make these blocks and selected polymer concrete as the fabric.
Roughly 2,000 concrete blocks have been made on the location throughout numerous building operations, which grew to become one of many undertaking’s strengths. Now, after the reopening of this constructing, quite a few groups are engaged in day by day actions and work on this house. This use change has introduced the constructing again into the financial and social cycle of “Ab o Atash” Park.
